Text from the international bestseller, originally published as an illustrated book by DK. This was recommended by the American Library Association: “the legend of Arthur as you’ve never seen it”; attracted full-length features in the Sunday Times and the TES – and sold almost quarter of a million copies in 14 countries. 


A beautifully written retelling of the complete King Arthur story, brought dramatically, vividly and very readably back to life. Perfect for all ages from 9 to adult. 


Authentically based on the iconic medieval work, Malory’s ‘Morte d’Arthur’, it covers all the important episodes:

* The sword in the stone

* How Arthur obtained the magic sword Excalibur

* His marriage to the noble Guinevere

* The coming of the Knights of the Round Table

* Merlin and the Lady of the Lake

* The evil enchantments of Morgan le Fay

* Sir Lancelot’s love affair with the Queen

* The Quest for the Holy Grail

* The last battle

* The promise of Arthur as the ‘Once and Future King’


Reviews of the first edition: 

– “a delightful retelling of the story which manages to bring the story alive and captivate the reader” (Goodreads)

– “This king Arthur book is amazing…although this is aimed at children as an adult King Arthur fan I think this is one of my best King Arthur books as it summarises the Malory version of the legends” (amazon.co.uk) 

– “I recommend this book to those who like Arthurian Mythology” (amazon.com)

– “chronicles the legend...simply and accessibly… both entertaining and informative” (Dispatch Online)

– “vividly brought to life” (Northwest Evening Mail)
